A Book to Read and Love - The English Patient - Michael Ondaatje

 


A short summary of The English Patient:

The secret thoughts of the shell shocked.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Sadness is very close to hate."


Questions to ponder while reading The English Patient:

Would you still be able to care for another person?

Would you be able to overcome your fear?

My thoughts about the book:

A post-WWII story.

Very sad, even the "romantic" parts.

I don't know that I would have kept trying.
